Growing Apples & Pears in Your Backyard
Have you ever wanted to grow apples or pears, but didn't know where to begin? Do you have an apple or pear tree in your yard, but aren’t sure if you are properly caring for it? Are you wondering why you are not getting as much fruit as you expected? Join UC Master Gardener Darlene DeRose for a presentation on the basics of growing and caring for apples and pears.
You will learn how to pick out the right tree for you, how to plant it and how to care for & maintain it over time. Darlene will also cover tips on growing trees in small spaces.
About Our Garden
Our Garden is a public demonstration garden of the UC Master Gardener Program of Contra Costa County, located in Walnut Creek at the corner of North Wiget Lane and Shadelands Drive, just off Ygnacio Valley Road. From April through October, weekly speakers present a variety of information on edibles gardening and home gardening in general.
UC Master Gardeners of Contra Costa maintain the garden and interface with the general public. We encourage you to bring in your home and garden questions and talk with a UC Master Gardener at the Ask a Master Gardener Table (9 am to Noon)!
